Ethan's Very Hungry Caterpillar First Birthday Party


Today was Ethan's First Birthday Party!  We hired a lovely church hall for our Very Hungry Caterpillar themed party.  We set up a play area for the children, a big table for food, a table for party bags and pressies and put up loads of decorations.


  • caterpillar with photos for each month
  • caterpillar made of balloons
  • caterpillar made of tissue paper pom poms
  • cake smash photo collage
  • weekly photo collage
  • birthday photo – enlarged
  • welcome sign
  • balloons and banners

  • apples, pears, plums, strawberries and oranges (from the story)
  • sandwiches (on little rolls made into a caterpillar shape)
  • rice cakes and carrot puffs
  • cupcakes (made into a caterpillar shape)
Party Bags:

Play area:
  • foam play mats – letters and numbers
  • tunnel
  • ball pool
  • caterpillar themed toys – links, shape sorter, wooden caterpillars, etc
  • balls and bubbles for the garden
  • colouring sheets and crayons (for older kids)

It was so much fun, even though Ethan was having a teething day, he still managed to have fun and it seemed that everyone else enjoyed it as well.  We feel very blessed to have had so many family and friends join us to celebrate our wonderful little boy!
